Summary: Parental Controls have minimal functionality. Sometimes they don't even work(ie. timer controls). Locks up about once a month. Signal a bit weaker than my old, cheap, airlink with external anteneas. Otherwise, small, functions OK for the money. No big regrets for price I paid.
Great range and performance after getting past the sloppy installation
5 March 2012
Summary: I bought this router at BestBuy to replace an old Buffalo Technology AirStation High Power N300 Wireless Router & AP WHR-HP-G300N (Black) after reading recommendation here in Amazon. The installation process was sloppy and here is my experience: 1. My first attempt to install using the supplied CD-ROM on my corporate laptop running Windows 7 Professional (where I don't have Admin privileges) failed to complete.
Summary: very easy install, bare-bones unit that simply gets the job done right. the only negative (and this is mentioned because this site requires a 100 character minimum review) is that the status lights are on the 'back' of the unit.
Summary: We use this at home so that we can use Wi-Fi on the kindle, iPod and smart phones. This router works great for our needs; we've had no issues with it thus far (had it about two months) and the signal strength is great. We can even get the wifi when sitting on the patio in the backyard or from the driveway.
Summary: I purchased this router today in combination with a Zoom 5341J cable modem after returning a Zoom 5350 wireless gateway (see my review on it). After getting the Zoom 5341J cable modem going with a wired internet connection (which was very easy), I switched to the router. This router was quite easy to set up if you are happy with all the factory defaults.
Summary: It took me a few weeks of trying to get this router to work before I had to enlist a friend who works as an IT tech. Once he figured out the settings, it worked like a charm. The signal was strong and clear, the speeds fast, and it could even be detected through a foot-thick fire wall (the physical kind, obviously), so if you set up this router, be sure you lock it down or neighbors will be able to poach on your signal.
Summary: Purchased the router to replace one about 8 years old that started to require rebooting often. Opened the box and broke out the setup CD and popped it in my computer, only to read that my software had to be at least OS 10.6. I had the latest system; OS 10.7.2 and the software would not install. I had to call Linksys and spent about an hour on the phone setting up the router.
Summary: My old D-Link G router died due to a thunderstorm, and so replaced it with this one (had to buy it from a local store). What I like: > Easy to setup (<5 minutes); no issues with setup. > Faster (Roku, Netflix stream the content well with no signal loss). Download speed doubled since my previous G router. SpeedTest shows 30MBPS. > Coverage is good but not great. ("mostly" 3 out of 3 bars in the house) > Power Adapter Supports wordwide voltage What I don't like?
